The Port of Portland is in active partnership with public health partners to respond to the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of employees and community members who use Port facilities is our top priority. Below are operational updates and information about how the Port is working to keep our community safe.
Health & Safety Measures:
To help control the spread of coronavirus and do our part to keep the community safe, the Port has asked all staff who can do our work remotely to do so. The Port (and airport) remains open and operational. We are following guidance from the CDC and Multnomah County Public Health on face coverings. All Port staff who have to perform their work at Port job sites must wear face coverings to protect those around them.
COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the travel and airline industry. It has also disrupted supply chains and international trade. In addition to the funding that may be available for airports as part of the CARES Act, the Port is proactively implementing a number of temporary measures intended to safeguard our financial stability and allow us to continue operating critical infrastructure for the region.
We will continue to assess and implement opportunities to reduce costs and adjust operations to keep our airport and marine facilities safe and efficient.
